I have been craving oatmeal like mad lately and haven’t been able to enjoy it due to my sensitivity to large quantities of oats. I started to ask my self what it was that I loved so much about oatmeal. First, I like waking up to an easy and comforting breakfast. Second, I love being able to mix and match what I put into my oats – to change up the flavors and textures.
I developed this simple, refined sugar-free, allergy friendly, one-bowl grain-free hot cereal to help me start my day off with a nutritious and satisfying breakfast. It’s ready in minutes and you can top with your favorite toppings.
3 tablespoons almond meal
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1 teaspoon ground flax-seed
1 teaspoon coconut sugar
1 teaspoon chia seeds
small shake of sea salt (salt enhances the other flavors)
1/8th teaspoon cinnamon
Using a spoon, stir together all the ingredients in a small serving bowl. Add 1/2 cup boiling water, mix and let stand 2-3 minutes. Top with your favorite toppings (or eat as-is) and enjoy!
Larger Batch: If you want to make a larger batch and store ahead for an even quicker breakfast, multiply the ingredients by the number of servings you want and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. For example, if I want to make enough for eight servings, I would multiply each ingredient by eight.
When you are ready to make your hot cereal. Measure out a lose 1/3 cup (5 tablespoons), add your 1/2 cup boiling water, mix and let stand 2-3 minutes before enjoying.
